Description

This species was common around the Silver Lake campground and one of at least four conifer species in the area. It was separated from the similar Red Fir, which also grows in the region, by its flat needles with grooves on their upper surface and the relatively right-angle from which they emerge from the twig (Red Fir needles bend with a "hockey stick" shape).
